""If you think it's bad now, imagine what Iraq would look like if the United States leaves before this government can defend itself and sustain itself," the president said. "Chaos in Iraq would be very unsettling in the region."

But one reporter noted that the conditions the president mentioned for pulling out of Iraq resemble the country's status before the United States led an invasion of it.

"You know, I've heard this theory about everything was just fine until we arrived, and kind of 'we're going to stir up the hornet's nest' theory," the president said. "It just doesn't hold water, as far as I'm concerned. The terrorists attacked us and killed 3,000 of our citizens before we started the freedom agenda in the Middle East."

President Bush was then asked what Iraq had to do with the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

"Nothing," the president said. He paused before continuing, "Nobody has ever suggested in this administration that Saddam Hussein ordered the attack. Iraq was a the lesson of Sept. 11 is, take threats before they fully materialize."

"Take threats before they fully materialize"? Well georgie - the threat of turning Iraq into a swamp of future terrorists has now fully materialized thanks to you. But seriously - I was amazed to hear reporters calling him on this! My expectations of the press are so low now that I actually felt GRATEFUL that one was doing his job...?
:wtf:

1. I'm watching the news and they have not covered this yet. They show Bush
speaking, but if you didn't know better it would seem no one asked him a question.

3. Ken Herman has always been that way.
He's a smart ass and funny as hell, and I don't think he's afraid of confronting Bush.

He was in the AP bureau in Austin when Shrub was Governor here, so he probably has his number.

4. Didn't someone also ask Bush why the U.S always
follows Israel's bidding and always apologizes for Israel?
